You can make an independent choice about whether to use the Haskell 2010 
language, and/or the Haskell 2010 libraries.

If you need to use modules from base that are not part of Haskell 2010, 
then you will not be able to use the haskell2010 package, but you will 
still be able to use {-# LANGUAGE Haskell2010 #-}.
